Canyon / SDMBA Email campaign

Unsexy beast or sleeping beauty?

Ok so it’s not glamorous, but it’s effectiveness is no fairytale. Email is the most powerful, cost effective marketing tool available to a brand.

I worked on Canyon email campaigns for four years, evolving and growing from a small list with sporadic activity, to bi-weekly sends to 18 countries in 11 languages. During this time email became and remains Canyon’s primary marketing machine and was instrumental to their expansion into the US.
